Gipsy Danger

I always felt that us, human beings, are the puniest of all of God’s creations, mostly because we are the least armed, so to speak. You know how even a tiny ant can bite the living shit out of you? We don’t have horns or stingers or even wings to fly away from danger, if need be.

Well, yes, He did give us the sixth sense, but let’s face it, how helpful is it when there is a rabid dog (forget a lion or a snake or other such scary shit) growling its face off at you, ready to attack at the slightest movement and your senses are paralyzed with fear? How useful is the sixth sense then? What are we going to do, talk the dog into getting a logical perspective of the attack? No, right? Thought so.

Also, I have very less respect for our race as well. I have my reasons, the one on the top of the list being that we are incapable of coexisting peacefully, not with our own kind OR with other kinds. You know, there are jungles full of animals of a billion different species that exist without causing destruction to everything surrounding them and we can’t keep an office pantry clean without assigning five extra people to do the cleaning at regular one hour intervals and STILL manage to leave it looking like a pigsty at the end of the day. Which is why I say, we are pathetic.

But let’s not go there, crux of the matter being that I don’t think too awesomely of us humans.  

What changed my perception, a tiny bit, but nevertheless, is Pacific Rim.

If we, some day, become capable of building those Jaegers and get two people to share minds strongly enough to be able to operate those ginormous, drool-worthy, mindfucking robotdaddies (I find normal, meaningful adjectives incapable of doing justice to Jaegers) effectively, I think we really ought to get a pat on the back.

And let’s not forget the background scores by that godawesome composer.

If you don’t watch Pacific Rim in the best theatre in town as soon as possible, you really are missing out on one of the prime examples of cinematic brilliance.

Here's the IMDB link and the Rotten Tomatoes link for those who check obsessively.
Here's the YouTube link to the OST playlist.
Here's a link to PVRCinemas for you to book your ticket. 
Here's one more picture in case the other two didn't pique your interest at the very least. 

My faith in humanity and its future has been restored to a small extent. We still have hope.

P.S: Please to note, I have never recommended a movie on the blog ever before.

P.P.S: Go with friends, I’d never have to able to scream my lungs out to my heart’s content if it weren’t for the six other screaming enthusiasts I went with.

P.P.S.S: And the screaming is not about not being classy, the movie just makes you wanna go AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmymindisblown!

P.P.P.S.S: Yeah, I’m done.


    It was so awesome!
    Its like a combination of Transformers and Power Rangers :P
    Loved it :)

    Hopelessly Hopeful

    1. Yep. Both of those on overdrive. Aaah, still gives me goosebumps, that Jaeger :) Thanks for dropping by! :)

  2. I have to go watch it now!

  3. Ok, I'm not generalising or trying to typecast, but a girl who loves Sci-Fi.?? Girl you are awesome. Have already planned for the movie. Have been waiting for this movie for some time now.

    1. Haha, I'm hopeless like that :P
      Hope you have already gone by now, or else GOOOOOO!!

    2. Ok, now that I have watched the movie, I think it was a little dumb. Effects and music were the only USP of the movie. Sorry.

    3. COMEON! Really? Was it the hype that took the sci-fi away? :(

  4. OK, I am yet to see the movie but I am catching good reviews about it. But seriously? God gave us the opposable thumb, what else could you ask for? :P Sixth sense, pooh! My senses would tell me to run, and not try to talk myself out of such situations should they arrive.

    Blasphemous Aesthete

    1. Opposable thumbs are useful for gaming and little else, these days :P

  5. Oh yeah! Heard so many great things about this movie. Especially the soundtrack. It is by Ramin Djawadi - The guy who did the Iron Man series and Game of Thrones. What more could you possibly need to know.

    Yet to watch the movie though! :(

    1. YES! It's brilliant, no? Go watch! And take her too:)


Go on, you can say it.
